There are floor to ceiling windows that show off the breathtaking views, with the indoor section spilling out onto a wooden terrace with blue-striped lounges – perfect for soaking up that Sydney Sunshine, or pretending you’re in a Hollywood film. They’ll even provide you a sombrero to keep you safe in the sun.

Open 7 days a week, you’ll find an all day breakfast menu with a range of light and hearty meals, a lunch menu that will make you drool (with a nice selection of vegetarian options), smoothies and milkshakes galore, Campos coffee, – best of all, there are wines, beers and a perfect summer cocktail list for sipping by the edge of the pool. Check out their menu here.

Tucked behind the Royal Botanic Gardens and sitting beside Woolloomooloo Bay, there’s always a good time to pop by the cafe, whether it’s after a swim, wandering in from a walk around the Harbour, grabbing a wine with a friend, or looking for somewhere new for your pre-work morning coffee.  Be prepared to want to come to Poolside Cafe all summer long.

Different opening hours in Winter and Summer. Check the Poolside Cafe website
